Wrapped in Lace

Worked in one piece from the bot­tom up with a geo­met­ric lace pat­tern and wrapped stitches, this easy cardi­gan has min­i­mal shap­ing but max­i­mum im­pact. Wear it with the fronts open for a ca­sual look, or close it with a fancy shawl pin for a dressier af­fair.

Pat­tern Notes

Body is worked in 1 piece from the bot­tom up to the un­der­arms, then di­vided for fronts and back. Sleeves are worked flat. The 4 front edge stitches are dou­ble

knit through­out for a closed edge. When shap­ing in lace pat­terns, if you can’t work both the yarn over and its ac­com­pa­ny­ing de­crease, work in stock­inette stitch in­stead.
